I am karthick vigneshwar, I head the academia and industry relations at infySEC. I am also the director at infySEC. Early from the late 90's, I have been always passionate about computer, especially games which eventually had got interest to learn how computers work, such as application, debugging, disassembling, compiling,etc., with time, the same interest got towards networking, like how packets communicate, how data gets transferred, bandwidth, then got lil into wireless and eventually turning back proved me I was not anywhere but a lovely apt domain called 'Security', I feel I have been travelling in a very interesting path from where I have started, I would certainly urge everyone of us to try it experience it, its not just the knowledge but its fun, and yeah for me I have miles to go myself.

After 15 years I have turned to focus my efforts on training how attackers hack systems and also started to help them understand how to secure ourselves against such attacks. I decided to teach all that I have learnt over the period of 15 years in form of few videos, which effectively means I teach all that 15 years to you in a week...  My instruction is very actionable with live demos and hands on, Also i share lab exercises which will enable you not just to read but implement what you have learnt, I want students to take the knowledge they gain and start using it to make money or do what they choose to do with it (ofcourse only ethical ones). 

In 2013, I along with my team at infySEC, stuck the World Record for conducting the largest and longest ethical hacking Marathon with over 9000+ participants assembled in one location, check us on YouTube for reference.

My expectations soon after my graduation about IT company's were shattered :D , afterall they say, you are what your company is. My fellow colleagues and team mates were working for money, I was desperate and searching for some like minded in computers, but again, it's been 5 yrs I have been working for Multi national companies and now i have got full time freelancing, afterall there is no one to question your time restriction of work, domain of work, etc..,You are master of your fate and captain of your soul.... Live the life you have imagined :D

You will find my teaching style is well liked by my students and they are always looking for new and exciting courses from me.

Here at Infysec, we’ve joined hands with our established trainers and instructors to build professional Information Security courses. Our course will lead you through the whole journey, from the basics of web, ethical hacking, to how proficiently you can mitigate the risks that pose a threat to an organization.

I highly recommend infysec to everyone.I joined the training with absolutely no prior experience in ethical hacking....When I attended a training..It was revelation..The fluidity and crisp and clear understanding of trainer was showing...No jargons.  In fact he made a very complex phenomenon very simple to comprehend. I gained much more than expectations.... The trainer was master in his subject knowledge...With answers to any questions shooting at him....

I enjoy the animation. No matter what computer course Infysec offers, I will most likely take it because of how the subject matter is taught and presented. We aren't forced to look at someone reading powerpoints or watching someone talking into the camera which makes me sleepy and becomes boring. There is no dull PowerPoint here; Instead, InfySEC animates the techniques and after the lessons provide step by step exercises. I wish all Udemy classes were taught this way.

This course quickly shows what are dangers in web. Great for beginners to realize how to write the web applications and secure the servers against attackers
